I'm mainly building this for fun to test what it's capable of. I'm probably going to end up swapping out the CPU for an 860K, as this APU is not an upgrade at all for the 3210M (see below).
I offered to sell this to a friend of mine who can barely play League of Legends on his MacBook Pro from 2012 (i5 3210M & Intel HD 4000 GPU).
At the end of the day it's something I get a lot of enjoyment out of and I can help a friend out at the same time. Plus, this is going to be my first AMD build!

The motherboard I went with just came out apparently, so it hasn't been added to PCPP as of yet. It has some amazing upgrading capabilities for the price point!
Update: I noticed that motherboard I bought on Monday is on sale today for $20 less than I purchased it for. I contacted Newegg and will be getting a credit for the price difference. Score!
